Map Shade Table Lamps

My map shades are created from vintage OS maps.  A one inch to one mile map from the 1960s or 1970s is perfect for a 20cm diameter drum shade approximately 18cm high.  The gorgeous retro colours are enhanced by a coloured appliqué strip which conceals the map’s vertical folds.  Taller drum shades can be made, but will have a horizontal crease around the circumference.  Two sizes of half-shade are also available.

They can all be custom-made using a map that is personal to you.  Map lamps also make ideal gifts – a pair of his and hers bedside lamps for a bride and groom featuring their home towns, a retirement present, anniversary gift or special birthday present.

Vintage map shades can be purchased to use with an existing lampbase or as a complete table lamp with a handcrafted turned wood base, or integral feet – see Lamp Sizes and Prices for more details.
